Steve Bell on Barack Obama and the Gulf oil spill —
BP to pay out $20bn over oil spill after talks with Obama

The Oil is certainly all over the Oval.  No kidding. -Mcat

********

The Guardian on how The Deal of the Century was struck…:

“There were sticking points,” Carol Browner, the White House energy adviser said – and with the developments yesterday, the suggestion was that it took Obama himself to get them unstuck.

BUT!

She refused to elaborate.

I guess it is a sh! sh! sh! shush! secret!

Could it get more Bush-y?

And yet not Bush-y… because Ob cares for the sparrow.  The small sparrow – and he lectures to others to be like him (yeah right):

Obama, who has been criticised for seeming emotionally detached from the crisis, told reporters he had asked Svanberg to keep in mind that many in Louisiana were still struggling to recover from Hurricane Katrina.

“For the small business owners, for the fishermen, for the shrimpers, this is not just a matter of dollars and cents; a lot of these folks don’t have a cushion,” Obama said.

Svanberg apparently told the president he would keep those people in mind when speaking to the board of BP.

um, K-H told us too, right at the mic outside the WH.  Next Obby will remind us Jesus was a fisherman.

That constant device, the [butcher] table reappeared:

Browner also insisted that the deal did not win BP immunity from fines or other punitive measures. “Nothing was taken off the table with respect to enforcement of the laws,” she said.

Except we’re in a hell of mess…

Here is what I see.. BP is not paying a lot of people down in the Gulf… monies they are out for lost business, small checks and big checks. They are paying out s o m e.

A good number of people, but hardly a really large number, can say they got One Check. Money, some, to some people and some of what is claimed to that some. (We are trapped in a sick riddle.)

My guess is Feinberg, a most hateable man imo, if you remember him from the 9/11 payouts… he will be a front man, working for BP. Facilitator.  (Gee, a Fixer!)

Another face. Not a good one.

Nothing else makes any sense.

 IOZ

[S]hit, I’m no fan of the military, but if ever there were a time for America’s Last White President™ to declare that he’s deploying the Second Fleet, this is it.

He concluded with a weird prayer. God does not remove all obstacles, but he is with us always. Um, what? How can you tell? Is that him, over there, dripping off that pelican?

Touchdown Jesus, Oil Jesus… whatever believers want him to be. Slice of Jesus on Toast..  Jesus on the Shower Curtain, in the soft cement.  The hard cement.  Etc.

If Jesus could start signing checks, maybe then.  Otherwise he seems along for the bad ride.

A voyeur.

Who knows…

Dead whale found south of Gulf oil spill site
(AP) – 2 hours ago

NEW ORLEANS — A dead sperm whale has been found floating 77 miles south of the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

According to a news release, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is conducting tests to determine the circumstance around the whale’s death. It wasn’t known if exposure to oil caused the animal’s death.

The whale was found Tuesday but its condition suggests it may have been dead for several days or more than a week.

It’s the first dead whale that’s been found since an oil rig exploded and sank in the Gulf in April, killing 11 workers.

The whale wasn’t found in oiled water but the location of its death is unknown. NOAA marine mammal experts are working to determine the location from which the whale’s body may have drifted.

fucker.

He’s gonna try real hard.

Meanhwile away from the sparrows…

The pathetic Mining and Mineral Services agency has released documents to Bloomberg that show BP was dealing with major cracks in the Maconda well as early as February.

On Feb. 13, BP told the minerals service it was trying to seal cracks in the well about 40 miles (64 kilometers) off the Louisiana coast, drilling documents obtained by Bloomberg show. Investigators are still trying to determine whether the fissures played a role in the disaster.

The company attempted a “cement squeeze,” which involves pumping cement to seal the fissures, according to a well activity report. Over the following week the company made repeated attempts to plug cracks that were draining expensive drilling fluid, known as “mud,” into the surrounding rocks.

Proof that BP knew there was a problem months ahead of time could increase liability for BP. In a letter to Tony Hayward earlier this week, congressmen focused their questions on mistakes BP made in the week leading up to the explosion.

Can they miss the point more? Via Mike Allen Playbook:

BREAKING — OBAMA, BIDEN DECLARE ‘RECOVERY SUMMER’:

Vice President Biden today will kick off ‘Recovery Summer,’ a six-week-long push designed to highlight the jobs accompanying a surge in stimulus-funded projects to improve highways, parks, drinking water and other public works. Biden will present President Obama with a report laying out a spike in stimulus activity this summer, and how it will contribute to a steady climb to a total of 3.5 million Recovery Act jobs by the end of the year. Biden, Obama and other administration officials will travel to more than two dozen Recovery Act project sites in coming weeks. Tomorrow, the president will travel to Columbus, Ohio, to mark the groundbreaking of the 10,000th Recovery Act road project, around Nationwide Children’s Hospital. On Monday, Biden will travel to Midland, Mich., for the groundbreaking of the new Dow Kokam advanced battery manufacturing facility.

BooHooHooMan - 17 June 2010

“Recovery Summer”, Wow! Now we’re cookin!
AND 6 whole weeks!
How very FDR , the WPA and the CCC of them.
O Ya – Make a space on Mt Rushmore for Ob now!
(Oh and Biden peekin in somewhere too.
😯 < — Can't forget Joe! )

Of course the beauty of it ~ is that the monumental
GoofBall addition, in addition to creating jobs, could be sponsored by BP. Maybe recirculating Oil flowing out of Barry's mouth, Joe ballin with a wad of bankers cash and sporting bling in the background. You know, Win Win Win!
Not to mention the aethetic value.

marisacat - 17 June 2010

We are run by Ad People. That’s who’s in the WH.

ts - 17 June 2010

Yeah, I was thinking if BP could design a giant condom thingy to trap all the hot air coming out of Washington DC, we could eliminate our dependency on foreign oil.

Cement cap would be fine with me.

Bloomberg’s Business Week has a piece up whining about how if the Cable and TelCom Barons don’t get their way before the FCC, who is reconsidering “net neutrality” it’s gonna cost jobs the economy yada yada bullshit yada.

Welp. Meet your head of the FCC.
And this is just the Wiki short and skinny. There’s more to it noted below as any familiarity with the players involvement in prior events show…

Julius Genachowski
FCC Chairman
Incumbent
Assumed office
June 29, 2009
Preceded by Kevin Martin
Born August 19, 1962 (1962-08-19) (age 47)
Political party: Democratic
Alma mater Harvard Law School (J.D.)
Columbia University (B.A.)
Occupation business executive
Religion Jewish
Website FCC Profile

Government and business experience

Genachowski worked on the select committee investigating the Iran-Contra Affair and for U.S. Representative (now Senator) Chuck Schumer.[4] He was Chief Counsel to Federal Communications Commission Chairman Reed Hundt, a position he left in 1996 to go into business.

He was Chief of Business Operations and a member of Barry Diller’s Office of the Chairman at IAC/InterActiveCorp. He had previously served on the Boards of Directors of Expedia, Hotels.com and Ticketmaster.[2]

Genachowski is a co-founder of LaunchBox Digital and Rock Creek Ventures.[3] He is also a special advisor at General Atlantic and a member of the Boards of Directors at The Motley Fool, Web.com, Mark Ecko Enterprises, and Beliefnet.[3] He was appointed to the board of JackBe in April 2006.[5]

He serves as a board member of Common Sense Media, a leading organization seeking to improve the media lives of children and families; and as an advisory board member of Environmental Entrepreneurs (E2). He also recently helped found the New Resource Bank, the country’s first commercial “green bank.”[2]
[edit] Obama campaign and transition

For the Obama 2008 Presidential Campaign, Genachowski was Chairman of the Technology, Media and Telecommunications policy working group that created the Obama Technology and Innovation Plan.[6] He also advised and guided the Obama campaign’s innovative use of technology and the Internet for grassroots engagement and participation.

He co-led the Technology, Innovation, and Government Reform Group for president-elect Barack Obama’s presidential transition team.[7] On January 12, 2009, several news outlets reported that Genachowski would be President-Elect Obama’s choice to head the Federal Communications Commission as Chairman. This was confirmed by a press release on March 3, 2009.[8]

Personal

He is married to Rachel Goslins, a documentary filmmaker. His parents are Eastern European Jews who survived the Holocaust.[10] His father’s cousin, Menachem Genack, is an Orthodox rabbi and the CEO of the Orthodox Union Kosher Division.[11]

L’Chaim! Genachowski clerked for Abner Mikva (as did Kagan!)
( Mikvah tho is an uber Zionist Dem Hack from Chi, turned Congressman, appointed Fed bench by JIMMEH, (FOOL!) later WH Counsel to Clinton. Tight with Rahm’s Dad, they stamped out scads of these sorts for decades. )

Any bets on how the wiretappers and money sappers are going to make out before the FCC? Hey sign everything over, we’re So OWNED.

I LOVE, too, how he was involved in that front, Beliefnet. LOL. Yeh go to confession or talk to Allah online, the guy at the other end is Jewish. 😆
Gotta love it.
So many fuckin scams.

Abner a rabbi to Obby.

He also married Al Hunt and Judy whatshername from PBS Lehrer…

w00t du jour:

Check, Please
by Keith Olbermann

Wed Jun 16, 2010 at 11:15:44 PM MDT

I was checking in tonight to see what was new, came across a diary trashing first me and my colleague Rachel, and scrolled through it shaking my head, sadly, until I got to one comment that leaped off the page.

can’t verify, of course… (2+ / 0-)
but a friend in the news biz tells me he got a damaging e-mail from one of his pals at NBC. something to the effect that their anger was pre-planned because “beating up on the President has been good for ratings.”

I haven’t checked but I’m hearing that Olbermann slammed the speech on Twitter before it even started.

“Can’t verify”… “haven’t checked”…It can’t be verified because it’s nonsense, and it wasn’t checked because nobody bothered. Unfortunately there’s been a lot of this here lately.

“lately”? It’s a feature, not a bug.

8. BooHooHooMan - 17 June 2010

Speaking of Zionists from Great Neck, NY

Daschle/ Clinton minder Jamie Gorelick who pillaged Fannie Mae for close to 30 mil , is now ushering BPthrough through those scary Dem Halls of Congress.

Remember when they floated her for Obamas Attorney General?
And Oopsie! ~ had to back off quick over Fannie.

The BP Escrow Czar? Feinberg? So moved by 9-11 his Bioslobber that is floating around Says, that he “volunteered to handle to the victims compensation fund. Yeh Gorelick will be dealing with him too. Workin together, on behalf of the SMALL PEOPLE.

LOL. It’s gettting so bad now for White Christian Male that Greg Craig I see is consigned to representing Goldman Sachs. LMAO.

9. BooHooHooMan - 17 June 2010

And LOL, In OTHER ZOG News, Obbie flew under the radar naming Bromwich to head MMS. A professional whitewasher:
DoJ Narco Task Force in the 80’s in NY. Heckuva job there!
Way to increase market share for Russian Israelis!
Bromwich was Clinton Admin Inspector General for DoJ for a few . Then after the Clinton stint, he was brought in as the Houston PD Evidence Room whitewasher. MetroDC Police “oversight after” that.
How many kilo counts corrected? Cases scuttled? Unsolved murders ?
Hell in Houston? In DC? The Small People are so Blessed!

Keep ’em comin’, baby!

White House Guts Reform To Protect CEO Pay

Ryan Grim serving as narrator.

The White House move pits the administration against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who told Barney Frank (D-Mass.) to stand strong against the effort.

“I met with the Speaker today and she said, ‘Don’t back down. I’ll back you up,'” Frank, the lead House conferee, told HuffPost. “Maxine Waters is very upset, as are CalPERS and others.”

Advocates said that the corporations fought the issue primarily over executive compensation concerns. Given proxy access, investors could rein in executive salaries. The Business Roundtable, which didn’t return a call requesting comment, is a lobby of corporate CEOS.

Valerie is the escort the boys sent out on it.
And BARNEY frankly weighs in floundering and flummoxed.

Valerie Jarrett, a senior White House adviser and Obama confidante, is the administration liaison to the Business Roundtable. Three sources said that Jarrett was behind the effort to strip the provision; the other two were unsure.

The investor-protection language was stripped and replaced by an amendment from Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.), who leads the upper chamber’s negotiations in the conference committee. Dodd is retiring at the end of this Congress.

“I guess this is the way it works, but the sucker was like a bolt from the heavens. It came out of nowhere,” said one advocate working on the issue.

Frank said that he wasn’t certain the White House was involved. “There may be some sense that the White House — I’ll explain it this way: this affects, of course, not just the financial institutions, but all corporations and, yeah, I think there are some people in the White House who think, ‘Well, we’re fighting the financial institutions, but why fight with some of the others you know, the other corporations?’ But all I can do is stand firm in our position, which we’re doing. I think there may be some White House influence, but I don’t really know. I would ask the Senate. It is interesting that they are reversing their own position,” he said.

Now they claim We Don’t Know! AS they pass the Bills.

11. BooHooHooMan - 17 June 2010

So ya know what this next thing means –
Prepare to be Raptured.
They’ve trotted out Oprah on the “Spill” and of course, OB..

(CNN) — Oprah Winfrey gave her support to those suffering in the Gulf states, saying President Obama is doing the best he can to handle the oil disaster.

“What’s going on in my heart is the same thing, everyone feels for what is happening to all of the fisherman and families who, this time of year, would be hosting people from all over the country and all over the world there,” said Winfrey, who was in Atlanta, Georgia, on Wednesday to speak at a middle school graduation.

“We can only hope and pray that this will soon be resolved in a way that people can pick themselves up and move forward,” Winfrey added.

“I think the president is doing the best anybody can,” said Winfrey, who campaigned for Obama when he ran for president. “I really don’t understand what people want him to do? I think he’s the president of the United States.

What WH talking points emoto-slobber. Just Fuck Off, Oprah.
I think they should stuff HER down the well. Along with the rest of the shills and their swill on the “spill”.

marisacat - 17 June 2010

I am sure when she does a show down in the Gulf she will cry. Though if BP does not get more checks to people, I don’t think any Ob friends will wan to do shows down there.

IT GETS WORSE: Former Contractor Says BP Never Received Federal Approval At ANOTHER Gulf Rig

Gus Lubin | Jun. 17, 2010, 3:46 PM | 955 | 5

Suddenly regulators are paying more attention to a former BP worker who has been complaining since 2009 that his company did not get approval on engineering plans, according to WaPo. snip

So, how many more?

And again… How sorry are all of youse guys?

As the BP Atlantis could face a new examination, so could dozens of BP rigs that Tony Hayward said were drilled with the same procedures used with the Deepwater Horizon.

BooHooHooMan - 17 June 2010

So you’re telling me I can’t put up a grape arbor off the back porch without a permit in New Jersey but I can drill a fucking monster oil rig off the coast if I had the dough…
Jeezufs Crifteszz 😯

marisacat - 17 June 2010

The grape arbor might attack your neighbor. And they bark at night.

Hahahahahah.. IOZ links to The Oil Drum and says, hell maybe all that is left IS prayer…

He links to a trimmed version of the very long Oil Drum comment that I posted in ncomments a couple of days ago. the abbreviated version is making the rounds, but I much prefer the original, long version.

U.S. Only Industrialized Nation With No Paid Leave For New Parents

The U.S. is now the one and only industrialized nation that doesn’t afford parents of newborns any paid leave.

Australia, which used to keep us company in that category, just passed a law that guarantees 18 weeks of leave at the federal minimum wage. It will go into effect next January, and it is available to “mums” and dads.

The U.S. isn’t alone. According to the International Labour Organization, there is no paid parental leave in Lesotho, Papua New Guinea, and Swaziland.

But we LUV teh kiddies … sure we do.

ts - 17 June 2010

There is too paid leave, we just call it sick leave or annual leave…or unemployment insurance

marisacat - 17 June 2010

All of those countries actually want the children. I don’t think we do, we just want to TALK about children, make political use of the fetus.. and the government would really like to severely UP the numbers of the legal buy-in type of immigration from select countries. ”Buy in” being where your application for citizenship is greatly aided if you buy property that then contains a business that employs people.
